Texture can impact aesthetic and performance characteristics of film
Embossed rolls for film create an interesting combination of visual, tactile, and performance attributes that deliver specific results for performance film. PRS Plastic & Film specializes in meeting customer requirements with pattern and texture development and roll production expertise.
The science behind the production of embossed rolls for film comes down to the ability to attain specific characteristics of the film substrate. Every detail counts, whether it be for consumer visual appeal or product performance. Some producers leverage the capabilities of custom embossing machinery to achieve their desired results.
PRS engineering teams work with direct producers as well as private label manufacturers to develop precise textures for their embossed rolls for film. These patterns range from product-specific designs through signature patterns across a brand’s complete product catalog.
Products rely on high-quality embossed rolls for film texture
Trash bags make up a significant portion of the products produced by our embossed rolls for film. As a premier supplier of rolls for this industry, we understand how pattern development and texture play a role in creating superior dart strength.
We have seen where patterns can increase the ability of film to stretch by as much as five times without breaking compared to plain plastic with no pattern. This allows for bags to come out of the box smaller than the advertised length, saving manufacturers on packaging and storage costs. It also generates process savings in the ability to blow a smaller tube with reduced resin usage.
Hospital gowns and dental bibs are another major product group that relies on high-quality embossed rolls for film. While not as functionally focused as the dart strength of a trash bag, these types of products concentrate on aesthetic elements that make them pleasing to the eye and touch.
